BOWFELL


At the head of Langdale are a string of high mountain buttresses on the northern rim of Bowfell. These buttresses offer high quality climbing that ranges from exquisite single-pitch lines to multi-pitch mountaineering adventures. The rock and ambience on all the routes covered is fantastic and in the right conditions a memorable day out is virtually guaranteed.
